    These can be made ahead and frozen for a quick snack when unexpected company shows up. Just tack on a few minutes to the baking time to compensate for their being frozen.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Crumble or mash the feta cheese with a fork.
    2. 2
      Add the grated cheese, parsley, eggs and pepper.
    3. 3
      Cut pastry sheets in strips about 2x12 inches.
    4. 4
      Stack them one on top of the other to prevent From drying.
    5. 5
      Brush a strip of phyllo with melted butter, lay another strip on top and brush that one with butter too.
    6. 6
      Put one teaspoon of the filling on the short end of the strip, facing you, and fold over one corner to make a triangle.
    7. 7
      Continue folding pastry strip from side to side in the shape of a triangle until the entire pastry strip covers the filling. (Remember how we were taught to fold a flag into a triangular shape? Think of that as you keep folding the dough over. You should have a nice, neat, triangular packet.)
    8. 8
      Proceed in this manner with remaining pastry strips and filling until all are used.
    9. 9
      Put"tiropitakia" on a buttered baking sheet, brush generously with melted butter and bake in a moderate oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
    10. 10
      Serve hot.
    11. 11
      You can also make these ahead, put on a baking sheet and freeze, unbaked. When frozen, just keep them in a ziploc bag and you can have tiropitakia at a moment's notice. Just add 5 more minutes to the baking time if you're using frozen ones.

      These appetizers are A1 - I baked mine from frozen in a 350F oven on a baking stone for 25 minutes - I watched that they were baking evenly and moved them around. Two points: be generous with the butter on each layer and on top but don't slather it on and use a full tsp of filling in each - If you don't you will find they can be a bit dry. I love the parsley flavor with the cheese. I have always made spinach & Feta Phyllo's. The folding of each appie gets tedious but they are worth every bit of effort - get someone to help you! Thanks Evelyn for a really great appie addition - I have taken a photo and if it turns out I will post it later

      I thought these were really good and easy to make. I did use parsley and mint. I thought the mint was a great addition!! I used feta and ricotta cheese. The only thing I didn't like, was since the pan was buttered, when they came out, I needed to rest them on a paper towel to blot up all the extra butter. Otherwise, I felt like it was doing a slip and slide of my lips! I did freeze half so I am excited to see how they turn out!

      These were one of the appetizers I made for my daughters wedding, I wanted to be able to make everything ahead of time and freeze them, so this recipe fit the bill. They are pretty easy and they were a big hit. I also made them for a baby shower I recently hosted, luckily I had the forthought to print the recipe and bring it along, because I just knew I would be asked for it! I made an extra batch to keep in my freezer just in case!!! Thanks Evelyn, I can count on you for great recipes
